An Award – for ME!

My dear friend Clare over at A Modern Military Mother has given me this award. I am truly overcome because for my blog to be considered as having substance was truly amazing. If you see the definitions of ‘Substance’ you’ll understand why I feel so touched by it.

Substance (OED): solid basis in reality; importance; the most important part or meaning

High praise indeed – so many thanks Clare & such an appropriate time as those of you who follow my blog will know!  One of the ‘rules’ of receipt was to sum up my blogging philosophy in 5 words. Well, I’ve not been doing it very long & I’m learning all the time but at the moment my philosophy would be that I write about

Things  close to my heart

I now pass this award onto others who for me are far more deserving. My list could go on for pages but I have been good & limited myself!

Holly at It’s a Mummy’s Life

Henrietta at Marketing to Milk

Rosie at Rosie Scribble

Nataliya at Suburban Mummy UK

Chris at Thinly Spread

Paula at Battling On

and although he may have a problem with the badge (!)

    I appreciate your input in my blog every time I post it’s lovely so thank you for thinking of me 🙂

  • Your blog is great!! I think we never quite see the value in our own things while thinking everyone else is great:) So that makes you perfectly normal. Well done:) Jen

  • That’s fabulous Juila. Thanks so much! xx

  • How you can think your posts are without substance is beyond me. I am fascinated by the job you have done, and all the insights and experience it has given you. I find your writing truthful and enjoyable. Keep going!
